The weight of the world is sitting heavy on my midsection

.

The winter doldrums took a bit more than a slim toll on my diet; I’m back to weighing 200 lbs. The bright side is that I only gained 5 lbs. since last fall. The dark side is that it is going to be a tougher row to hoe for me to get down to this year’s goal of weighing 185 lbs. The local weather so far this year has been lousy, but good enough during the past couple of weeks for me to spend between 2 and 6 hours a day working outside. By the end of each day, I am usually as beaten up as a borrowed mule with little energy left for writing blog entries.

I'd love to weigh 200 lbs again. I doubt anyone would recognize me 100lbs lighter than I am now

good luck

Heh, I'm just a short guy; the 200 may look better than when I was at 240 but not as good as when I was 160 (which is where I belong). IIRC I was 145 when I graduated high school...

Thanks, Mulligan; good luck to you also.
